Distilled from the roots of America….Meet, The Bigsbys

thebigsbys

Saturday finds us listening to some good old boy tunes. One of the things I have enjoyed the most this past year is discovering new bands (to me) that I haven’t been introduced to through other media. Every now and then you can stumble upon some pretty amazing bands and for sure The Bigsbys are the real deal. So go grab that second cup of coffee pull up a seat, if the kids or pets are still sleeping put on some headphones and crank it up…..

That time on tour we lost a gig & spent the day driving around Panama City, Florida begging bars to let us play that night.

Greasiest show of the whole tour. That bar is closed now but we met people we still keep in contact with.
